Candace Simar carries a passion for history and her Scandinavian heritage.
“I took an interest in frontier history after discovering that my great grandfather drove the stagecoach from Fort Snelling, Minnesota, to Fort Abercrombie, Dakota Territory, in the closing years of the Civil War.” Although fictional, her meticulous research and attention to detail makes the experiences of early Scandinavians come alive on the page.
Simar is the author of the award-winning Abercrombie Trail Series: Abercrombie Trail 2009; Pomme de Terre 2010; Spur-Award winning Birdie 2011; and Spur-Award finalist Blooming Prairie 2012. These historical novels tell the story of Norwegian immigrants during the 1862 Sioux Uprising and later grasshopper plagues. Simar places her fictional characters in the real history of the region including Fort Abercrombie, Fort Pomme de Terre, Fort Juleson and the Wadsworth Trail.
Shelterbelts (2015 was a finalist for the 2016 Midwest Book Award and the Willa Literary Awards for Historical Fiction 2016. Kirkus Reviews describe it as a “moving, disturbing and hilarious story of postwar rural America.”
Dear Homefolks and Other Stories, released by Evergreen Press 2017, is a collection of short stories about Norwegian immigrants struggling to find a toehold in America.
Escape to Fort Abercrombie, released by Five Star/Cengage 2018, tells the story of the Fort Abercrombie siege through the eyes of a young Norwegian who must take younger siblings ten miles through tall grass to safety at Fort Abercrombie—in the middle of the Indian war.
